I'm SURE This Will All End Well.

China is moving into the Med, allegedly they will be joining the Russians in attempting to shore up Assad. What is certain is that the Russians are coordinating with the Iranians and they, the Syrians and the Iranians have signed military agreements with Iraq

Meanwhile, the U.S. and the French are conducting airstrikes against ISIS (which is pursuing an ambitious agenda) while the Syrian, Chinese, Iranian, Russian and Iraqi forces are conducting air and ground operations. Except for Iraq, none of those air-forces or ground forces are not coordinating with us in any way and at least the Russian planes are running with transponders off. Heck, the Russians got their planes there surreptitiously and were only detected once they arrived.  Meanwhile, all sides are shooting at targets that may or may not be insurgents.

What could POSSIBLY go wrong?


In other, arguably less potentially exiting news, it looks like Catalonia may well be breaking away from Spain as the secession parties just won an election.

1 The intensity of the U.S. campaign is rather low, so the actors can work out a schedule, where, for example, U.S. bombs on Tuesdays, Russians bomb on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, Syrians bomb on Fridays, and Sunday is reserved for Israel.

The American bombing campaign is a joke. It's an example of how Obama will do something just so he can defend himself by saying he's doing so, but which doesn't actually have any important effect.

It amounts to four or five sorties per day, usually, which is virtually a complete waste of time. Obama's foreign policy is to convince everyone, enemies and allies alike, that the US is no longer able and/or willing to participate in active foreign policy. Obama's America is no longer the world's policeman.
